2 W elcome to This handbook is designed to: MTC s Let you know what MTC is all about s Answer your questions s Address your concerns As a Manhattan Treatment Court (MTC) participant, you must follow the instructions given in court by the Judge and the rules and treatment plan given to you by your Case Manager and Primary Treatment Provider. This handbook will explain what is expected of you. It will also provide general information about the MTC program. Ask your Case Manager or Defense Attorney to explain to you anything in this handbook that you do not understand! What is MTC? MTC is a special courtroom in the Manhattan Criminal Court. It is a program for first time felony offenders arrested in Manhattan, who face felony drug charges and who also abuse drugs. Instead of jail or probation, MTC will help you enter and stay in a drug or alcohol treatment program. The MTC program includes regular court appearances and supervision by the MTC judge. After your arrest you were given the choice of joining MTC or having your case go through the regular court process. If you abuse drugs and are eligible for the MTC program, your Case Manager will work with you to build a treatment plan. While you are in treatment, the Judge will closely watch your progress. What do I have to do? If you agree to participate, you sign an agreement. This agreement is a contract between you and the Judge. It explains what is expected of you and what will happen if you do not follow the rules. Before you sign your agreement, you should speak with your Defense Attorney and have your questions answered. While you are in a treatment program, the Judge, prosecutor, your lawyer and your case manager will monitor your progress in treatment. Your case manager will be in constant contact with your treatment program staff. Your urine will be tested regularly. You must stop using drugs and alcohol. How long will I be involved in MTC? The amount of time you spend in MTC will depend on the crime you were originally charged with, your criminal history, your plea and your individual progress in treatment. Most people will spend anywhere from one to two years in the MTC program. If you have any questions, speak to your Defense Attorney. If the Judge says you can no longer participate or you ask to stop participating, the Judge will sentence you to the jail time you and your lawyer agreed to when you pled guilty. 3 4

3 What s in it for me? Rewards MTC acknowledges progress in the following ways: Recognition by the Judge and your peers Monthly certificates of achievement Less frequent appearances in court Less frequent visits to your program Dismissal of your charges If you successfully complete MTC, the Judge will dismiss, but not seal, your felony charge.* To successfully complete MTC you must: Attend your program regularly Follow all program rules Participate in all required activities Give negative urine tests for at least one year A New Beginning MTC offers you the chance to move forward in your life. In the rest of this Handbook, you will find information on what you need to do and where you can turn for help. Remember - there are many people who make up the MTC Team, and they all want to see you succeed. If you take the help that is offered, you will discover many ways to make a better life for yourself. *On rare occasions the terms of the plea agreement may require the Court to sentence you to time served or probation. If you are participating in MTC because of a Violation of Probation (VOP), upon successful completion of the program, the Judge will restore or terminate your probation. 5 Rules: What are the rules of MTC? To remain in MTC you must follow these rules: 1. Appear in Court as scheduled: Arrive on time for all court appearances. If you are not here on time, you may wait all day for your case to be called 2. Arrive on time for all other appointments 3. Stop using and carrying drugs, alcohol and drug paraphernalia 4. Never threaten, harass or use violence against anyone 5. Never leave the treatment program, the Court or the MTC office without permission 6. Respect the property of the treatment program, the Court and the MTC office and always clean up after yourself 7. Dress appropriately for court and case management visits (no hats, doo rags, tank tops, shorts or pants that hang below your hips) 8. In court, address the Judge as Your Honor or Judge (not Miss or Mister) 9. Be Honest at all times 10. Live a law-abiding life 6

4 Appear in Court as Scheduled You will have to appear in front of the Judge regularly. The Judge will be given reports on how you are doing on your drug and alcohol tests and attendance and progress in your treatment program. The Judge will ask you about your progress and discuss any problems you may be having. Complete MTC Phases MTC Phases are explained in the following pages. They are your steps to success. Depending on your situation, you may have to come to court several times a month. As you make progress, you will come to Court less often. There may be times when your lawyer cannot appear with you in court, because your case is advanced after the MTC staff received information or your lawyer has a conflict with other matters. Your lawyer will be notified of all scheduled appearances. On the day of your Court Appearance, you must arrive at the MTC office at 8:30am and stay until the Judge says that you may go. Follow your Treatment Plan After you first meet, your Case Manager will develop a Treatment Plan. Your Treatment Plan will explain the following things: Attendance at a substance abuse treatment program Regular drug and alcohol testing Medical screening Attendance at an educational/vocational program Participation in self-help groups Your Case Manager will also help you with other areas of your life according to your individual needs. Your Treatment Plan will vary according to your progress. It is your responsibility to keep all scheduled appointments and to arrive on time. You must go over your Treatment Plan with your Case Manager and follow it carefully. 7 Remember that moving to the next Phase will be based on your own progress and your ability to stay focused on what you must do to meet all MTC rules and expectations. 8

5 Steps to Success! MTC Phases Using information from your initial interview and the results of your drug test, your case manager will recommend a course of treatment for you known as your Treatment Plan. Like everyone else who participates in the MTC program, you must move through 3 Phases of Treatment. In each phase you must have 4 drug-free months in-a-row before you can move to the next phase. The 3 Phases of Advancement will differ in length for everyone as they move through the MTC program. You must complete each requirement before you can move to the next Phase. Remember: If you miss appointments, use drugs or alcohol, or ignore other requirements, you could be sanctioned and your time in MTC will be longer. In all phases you must: Meet with your Case Manager as directed Attend Court as instructed Give drug and alcohol test samples as directed Follow your Treatment Plan The MTC staff and your program will recommend to the Judge when you are ready to move to the next phase PHASE I Alternative All MTC participants enter in Phase I. Phase I begins after you sign your MTC agreement. Goals: Choose the ALTERNATIVE of treatment rather than drug use Build a foundation of abstinence and work towards a drugfree lifestyle. How to Do It: You become a participant in the Treatment Court program. MTC will diagnose your addiction and determine a treatment plan based on your needs and the severity of your drug abuse. MTC will place you in a treatment program and you will stop using drugs and alcohol. To move to Phase II, you must meet the Phase I requirement, which is: 4 months in a row clean time without sanctions in treatment. Remember that moving to the next phase will only happen when you recognize you have an Alternative to the lifestyle you have been living. 9 10

The goals you set up with your Case Manager may also include: Healthcare Education Employment These goals are explained in detail on page

9 Comply with Drug and Alcohol Screening: Treat others with respect: You should respect the opinions and feelings of other people in MTC. Verbal or physical threats to anyone will not be tolerated. Any inappropriate behavior will immediately be reported to the Judge and may result in a severe sanction or your termination from the program. You must dress appropriately for your court appearances and treatment appointments. Clothes having a drug, alcohol, criminal or violent theme, advertising alcohol or drug use or showing any gang affiliation are not allowed. Sunglasses are not to be worn in court unless approved by a doctor. Note: You will not be asked to be an informant in this program. You will not be asked to discuss any information concerning anyone s behavior or progress except your own. Cease all drug related activity: You may not possess, sell, or use alcohol, marijuana and all other illegal drugs. You also may not possess or use any drug paraphernalia. Any relapse by you involving drugs and/or alcohol must be reported to your Treatment Program immediately. Any drugs that a doctor prescribes for you must be reported to your program immediately. You will be required to bring the prescribed medication in its original container. 17 One of the primary goals of MTC is to help you remain drug and alcohol free. A positive drug test or your admission of drug or alcohol use may result in a sanction or change in treatment. Repeated drug or alcohol use may result in termination from MTC. Drug and alcohol tests will be done at your treatment program and at the MTC Treatment Center. You will be tested throughout all 3 phases of MTC. If you are in an outpatient treatment program, you must complete at least 1 drug test each week. If your program does not give you a drug test and you do not report to MTC for a drug test, the Judge will hold you responsible and will impose a sanction.* Stop Drinking Alcohol: Drinking any kind of alcohol is not allowed while you are part of the MTC program. Use of alcohol can be just as harmful as illegal drugs for someone who struggles with addiction. You will be tested for alcohol use and a positive alcohol test can result in a sanction. Be Law Abiding: You must not break the law again. Any more criminal acts may result in being terminated from MTC. You must immediately report any new arrest to your case manager. Communicate with Your Case Manager: Keep in regular contact with your case manager Talk about issues involving your treatment Get permission to travel outside of the state *A week without a drug test is considered a positive test for that week. 18

10 Health Developing healthy living habits and knowing how to handle physical and emotional problems are essential for your success in avoiding drugs and succeeding in the MTC program. MTC can help you get the following health services: Support Services MTC Support Services are available to you and your family. These services will help you to overcome stress, problems and conflicts that may block your recovery process. Doctor and dentist TB (Tuberculosis) screening Testing for STD s (sexually transmitted diseases), Hepatitis and HIV Pregnancy testing Health and nutritional counseling Psychological testing and treatment You must follow through on all treatment recommendations. You may also be asked to provide proof to the court of medical conditions or appointments. Any prescribed drugs must be reported to your Case Manager. The MTC team recognizes that recovery is not easy, but we praise your effort and courage to change. Together, we can make it work

11 Education MTC will help you meet your educational, vocational and employment goals. MTC can help you get the following educational programs: High School: if you need help with a particular subject or area, MTC will help you find a tutor. GED: work toward your high school equivalency diploma. Vocational: MTC can help you find training in many fields, from food service and haircutting to computer technology and auto mechanics.
